    Why does OpenCL on Linux need X?

      Hi,

       

      I was wondering why my GPU (Radeon HD 7790) isn't recognized as compute

      device without X running on Linux? Sure, I can make it work, I can make

      the X session fairly minimal (in terms of memory and other resources it

      might consume), but I'd still appreciate if I did not have to deal with

      X at all on the machine.

       

      So, what's the reason? Is AMD planning to "fix" this?

       

      Thanks!
